Description: Need for an experienced physical design engineer using Cadence Design Suite. This engineer will assist in the development, implementation and testing of a digital neuromorphic accelerator chip. The selected candidate will work with other logic designers and system architects to implement ASIC physical design under the supervision of team lead. Task Description: Candidates are expected to create/modify/script Physical Design tool flows; as well as perform synthesis, physical design, clock-tree design, timing closure, power/performance/area optimizations and signoff based RTL.
Requirements: Position: *Hierarchical chip-level Clock Tree architect. Required Expertise: *Multiple successful tapeouts at lower-node technologies (using FinFETs at 14nm nodes and/or below) *At least 4 years experience with Cadence tools in the areas of physical design, including synthesis, LEC, floorplanning, hierarchical clock-tree creation, Place and Route, power grid creation, hierarchical integration, DFM, Signoff *Experience with 3rd party IP-s, integration of IP into the design and IP testing *Ability to perform and understand results of STA, timing closure and timing signoff *Extensive experience with power analysis, power optimizations and power signoff *At least 3 years TCL and SHELL scripting Ideal candidates will have additional expertise in all of the following areas: *Extensive experience with multiple Cadence EDA tools, tool administration, and flow automation; *In-depth understanding of memory structures, memory testing and integration; *Synthesis (including PLE) and formal equivalence checking; *Power/Performance/Area analysis and optimizations; *RTL, gate-level and transistor-level simulations and debugging; Additional Preferred Skills: *3 years of Python scripting; *Experience with DFT implementation and integration. .
